Second Semester Traditional WCPSS Calendar UPDATED 2-16-21

This calendar includes the WCPSS 1/A, 2/B, 3/C rotation schedule. 


Here's what you need to do to prepare for your child's return to campus: 


  • AFHS Back to School Guide LINK
  • Students who are sick or not feeling well should stay home. If a student begins to not feel well or shows signs of illness during the day, a parent or guardian will be expected to promptly pick them up from school.
  •  If your schedule allows you to serve your child’s school as a substitute teacher, please consider applying today.
